Sharing the Dharma Day

April 14 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm PDT

Abbess teaches book.

Sharing the Dharma Day
with the Sravasti Abbey Community

Join us live for a peaceful day of community reflection, sharing, and fellowship.

Abbess teaches.

Offered one Sunday a month, Sharing the Dharma Day is a chance for newcomers and old friends to explore the Buddha’s teachings and share in community fellowship.

The day includes a guided meditation (no experience necessary!), a Dharma talk, vegetarian potluck lunch (no garlic or onions, please), and facilitated group discussion. All are welcomed.

Topics are drawn from the book, An Open-hearted Life: Transformative Methods for Compassionate Living, by Abbey founder and abbess Ven. Thubten Chodron and Eastern Washington University psychologist Russell Kolts.

People from all faiths and backgrounds can apply the principles explored on Sharing the Dharma Day to enhance their lives.

For this April event, Ven. Sangya Khadro will give the Dharma talk.

See below for how to join online.

See previous Sharing the Dharma Day teachings.

All Abbey Dharma programs are offered freely, and your offering is welcomed. Make an offering here.
